While living in Ireland, Moylan Ryan stumbled upon a discovery that would change his life. On the dusty shelves of an old bookstore, Ryan uncovered a book about Rolfing. Pioneered by Dr. Ida P. Rolf, Rolfing is the practice of relieving stress and pain through the manipulation of connective tissue and the nervous system as they relate to body alignment. This newfound technique fueled Ryan's curiosity about the body-mind relationship—he was currently on the path to becoming a body-centered psychotherapist—and led him to relocate to the United States in pursuit of his new discovery. Now a certified Rolfing practitioner, Ryan treats patients by aligning their connective tissues around one vertical axis to help to relieve pain, boost flexibility, and increase hula-hooping prowess. Ryan also calls upon his license in massage therapy to untie muscular knots with six different massage modalities and furthers the ideals of Rolfing through movement kinesthetic sessions, body-centered coaching, and group workshops.
